This page is for those that know me through work.
Boy could I have some fun with this page if I ever decided to throw my hand in. That could be sooner than later (07 Jul 08) No longer the place I joined 10 years ago. Seems to be populated by back stabbing yes men. I can tell it like it is but you wouldn’t want to hear it. Recommended PPE stab proof vest.
This page is going to have a short future life, the before picture has been relocated, traffic is minimal and contributes little to the site.
The rest of the site is probably too focused on cycling and the Weight Management side of it only applies if you are within the boundaries of the Wirral Area Health Authority.
I’m being asked about twice a day now about my weight loss as there is now a noticeable difference.
First of all thanks for all the positive comments it’s been most encouraging.
The second thing that most people are asking is how far I want to go or do I have a target weight. The truth is I haven’t at the moment but below 100kg is achievable and is not something I would have thought possible a few months ago.
This was some time ago. I’ve now set myself a maximum weight of 88 Kg.
For those that are thinking it but are afraid to ask “I have not got cancer”.

Food at work is now limited to a salad I have to order every day as the rest of the Fayre looks like it has no place in any of the above publications. Vending machines are full to the brim with stuff I don’t eat anymore. A Caesar salad just about ok but I ask for no dressing to be put on it. Update 09 Oct 06 the salad now gets a jacket potato put on it (when they are available!!!, a canteen with no jacket potato,s for a week, what madness is that). The healthy options chicken breast and tuna steak have also been added to the list but for the life of me I can’t see why I have to order it 2 hours in advance. A lot of the menu you would be able to feed to school kids these days thanks to Jamie Oliver.
I’ve been asked for before and after pictures so the diet can be flogged on Ebay, it,s not mine to sell and the polite (printable) answer is no.
You no longer have to add an email address to a comment so the above holds true.
This page was written a few months ago and it looks like some of the figures will have to be revised, the 100kg target looks like it needs to be 80 kg which would be a BMI of less than 25 (normal). Current BMI is 26.6 which is the overweight class.
Don’t bother trying to tell me the BMI figure is flawed and that athletes would be classed as obese, you’ve just wasted your breath and have gone into the black book under the fool category.
Just seen some similar rubbish in The Times letter page, just goes to prove there are idiots at all levels of society.(14 Dec06)
I’ve just picked up one of the latest issue of company fleeces. In my absence an XL was ordered for me, I was previously an XXL along with a fair few others. Just sticking my arm in the sleeve of the XL size proved it was way too big. With a bit of horse trading I’ve now got a M (medium). You are reading this right, I’ve gone from XXL to M in two years. To put it into perspective I used to fill an XL Tyvek and I do mean fill one. When the cheaper versions were introduced I had problems with them splitting.
